About AMBISTRYN S INJECTION 0.75GM

AMBISTRYN S INJECTION 0.75GM belongs to the group of medicines called 'anti-tuberculosis', primarily used to treat and prevent bacterial infections like tuberculosis (TB), pneumonia, influenza, plague and other infections. Tuberculosis is an infectious bacterial disease that mainly affects the lungs, but it can also spread to other body parts such as kidneys, brain, spine, and bone marrow. AMBISTRYN S INJECTION 0.75GM does not work against infections caused by the virus.

AMBISTRYN S INJECTION 0.75GM contains Streptomycin, an antibiotic that prevents the production of an enzyme known as mycolic acids by bacteria essential for the cell wall formation (protective coating). Thereby, bacteria get killed without a cell wall and burst due to disruption in their metabolism. Thus, AMBISTRYN S INJECTION 0.75GM is effective against a bacteria named Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which causes TB (tuberculosis) and prevents further infection.
